Of his sculpture Martin Puryear has said: "I think my work speaks to anybody who has the capacity to slow down."

Puryear is best known for his works in hard wood, his primary medium, but he also utilizes other materials including rawhide and wire. Michael Kimmelman noted in the "New York Times" (March 1, 1992), "No artist today has a greater reverence for wood or can do more with it." In 1989, Puryear represented the United States at the Sao Paulo Bienal, thus becoming the first black art (showing 500 of 14277 characters).
